# 1 Tyken's Rift - Repel values?
07-26-2011, 02:03 PM
Anyone know what kind of Repel values Tyken's has?

I know it's obviously dependent upon Aux power and skills, but I'm just looking for a general amount. It's obviously going to be less than Gravity Wells, but by how much?

The tooltip in game does not state any value nor does the detailed description in the Powers window.

I don't recall it ever having repel. Even if it did, it was negligible.

It has a negative repel value, which is what pulls people in.

Like for example, my GW 3 was a -0.56 repel value.

Yes I know GW has negative repel values, but I don't think Tyken's does. It does minor damage and the power drain. As far as I can remember, it never had a repel value associated with the skill or if it did it was negligible just like the damage value.

Ah, poo. So it looks like you more or less need a tractor beam to make good use of Tyken's.

No repel, you will need to pair it with tractor or a target engines, even tier one of it is usually good enough. Once the power drain kicks in anyhow they aren't going anywhere for a while.

Huh... I could have sworn there was some kind of negative repel. I know for a fact i've been sucked backwards into one while moving at full speed. And this was in PvE against a breen capital ship (Desna I believe) so no chance of being stacked with a gravity well. And I was at near 10k range so no tractors either.

I've also used tykens III extensively on my bop and carrier and I've seen a number of npc escorts fly right through it and then get pulled back to the middle of the rift.

Then again I could just be seeing things.
